    Holy shit, the Friar Tuck Inn! I stayed there for 4 days about 25 years ago while skiing Hunter Mt. I remember the place was HUGE. My friends and I used to wasted in one of the bars and get lost going back to our rooms. Is it still open?

    Great pictures! I love seeing pictures of my home state and places I have never been. I live in Corning and stick mostly to the Finger lakes and Southern Tier region.

    looks like 2018 got lost in the mix, not much riding due to family obligations so
    to keep the thread going I'm adding a few photos of the Albany NY Distinguished Gentlemans Ride I hosted
